FINALLY HAD A DATE HE
WONT 8E BOASTING ABOUT/
Dove Selden's horse had left a clear
trail. Sheriff Tom Mackey had had no trou-
ble in following il all the way from the
back of the bank at Custer Cily across the
Sierra foothills. But now, Mackey faced a
dilemma, for here at the base of a mesa,
Selden had led his horse onto a well-trav-
eled road and the clear prints were lost
amidst the hoofmarks of dozens of horses
which had traveled this way within the
past few days.
More than that, the trail forked at this
point, one branch heading south toward
Texas, the other circling westward toward
Looking up toward the setting sun
Mackey tried to figure which way Dave
Selden had gone. Considering that Selden
had ten thousand dollars of bank loot with
him, it would pay to camp here for the
night while he tried to unravel the puzzle.
It was toward dusk that the sheriff saw
the second rider approach, tall, lean,
"Howdy, Sheriff," said the newcomer.
"Haven't seen you since they brought
the body of Hank Fletcher into Custer,"
replied Mockey. "What are you doing
"You know my business, Sheriff. I'm a
bounty hunter. Reckon I'm on the trail of
the same man you're following."
"Now look, Braden, Dave Selden's
just a kid. Didn't know what he was doing.
If 1 can find him, get him to give himself
up — "
"Thai's |ust what I intend doing,
Mackey. The bank's offering five thou-
sand for Selden, dead or alivel"
"And if I know you, you'd just as soon
bring him in dead."
"No sense getting riled, Sheriff. After
all, we're both in the same business. Mtnd
if 1 camp here with you tonight?"
Tom thought for a moment. If Braden
found Dave first — it would be the kid's
finish, Any delay would be to the good.
"All right," he said, " 'light down. You can
share my fire."
"Thanks," said Braden, unsaddling his
horse. "And I'll give you a tip. Selden left
word with his wife, telling her where he
was going to hide out. I tricked the infor-
mation out of her." Broden grinned. "So
you might as well head back for Custer,
because I'll find him first."
The sheriff poked at the fire thinking
long and hard. He would have to act fast
if Dave Selden's life was to be saved.
Early the next morning Mackey arose
to find Braden already gone. But os the
sheriff examined the trail a slow smile
came to his face. He knew exactly which
way to ride now.
It was that noon that Tom Mackey came
upon the cabin deep in the Badlands. His
arrival was none too soon, for as he
slipped up to the shack he could hear
Dave Selden's voice pleading. "But,
Braden, I tell you I was all packed, ready
to come back to Custer with the money."
Braden's answer was a harsh chuckle. "I'll
save you the trouble of going back. I'll
just gun you down right here. That way I
can collect the bank loot and the reword
"That's what you think," said the sher-
iff, as he stepped forward, leveling his
"Mockey!" Braden dropped his gun in
astonishment. "How'd you find your way
here? That trail was covered with horse
"None of them like the tracks of your
horse, Braden. Take a look ot that left
front shoe. I nicked it last night while you
were asleep. It was just a matter of fol-
lowing the trail. And after what I just
heard, I'm holding you for attempted mur-
